In reality, restless legs are usually the only sign of vessel disease for most people, which is cause enough to seek the best treatment for restless leg syndrome possible.
What Is Restless Legs Syndrome
At its core, RLS causes people to experience strong urges to move their legs. They kick and jerk without thinking it. Not to mention, it’s usually worse at night and while laying down. So, it can decrease their quality of sleep and wreak havoc on other areas of their lives.
People do not experience pain from restless leg syndrome. However, they do experience great discomfort from it. In the end, constant discomfort can have a large impact on mental health. RLS has multiple symptoms. However, it has a big one: It’s the need to move or fidget the legs.

The first, a condition that causes blood to pool in the legs. And the second, where veins are enlarged and twisted. Dr. Arad of Wellness and Pain uses several methods to treat vessel insufficiency and varicose veins. These methods are often the best treatment for restless legs as well.

The Best Treatment for Restless Leg Syndrome
At Wellness and Pain, Dr. Arad uses vessel treatments to help patients with varicose veins or vessel insufficiency who also have restless legs syndrome. These treatments include:
Radiofrequency Ablation uses energy to heat the inside of the vessel walls, virtually removing damaged vessels by causing them to close.
Sclerotherapy uses a foam that causes scarring to close off problem vessels. The foam is injected into these vessels, resulting in blood flowing through healthy ones.
